YRS 2015 will bring together early career researchers (postdocs and graduate students) from a wide range of disciplines across BNL to exchange information and practice presenting their research work in a supportive scientific environment. This event will showcase the high value that young researchers bring to BNL through their research accomplishments and provide them an opportunity to explore potential research collaborations across the laboratory. Furthermore, it offers an excellent platform to demonstrate cutting edge BNL research activities to external audiences.

Note: This website will be the source of all symposium related information and is being updated frequently. Please be sure to check back often.
